For all the folks getting up in arms about the Berkeley Hills tree removal project, a few thoughts:

A. "The trees in Strawberry and Claremont Canyon have been there for decades and hardly constitute a "hazard."" is a totally unfounded statement.

B. The trees they are targeting are largely Eucalyptus trees, which are a non-native invasive tree that is the main the reason for the fire danger...

C. seriously, the post you're all linking to is obviously biased and largely factually unfounded.

D. here's a (relatively) neutral post that covers some different opinions on this topic from a few years ago.

Any of my Bostonian friends who do computational stuff might want to check this out. I tried it in Berkeley and it was really useful!
